In the coming months, I'm looking to throw my hand at a fencing project on a corner block.

I was looking to get some advice on setting posts.

Has anyone had experience with setting fence posts within the structure of a retaining wall? I am looking to position the picket fence on top of the retaining wall once built, and had planned to use an additional h-channel to hold up the posts.

Would this idea affect the load capacity of the retaining wall?

Any previous project experience or tips would be awesome.

I trust one of our Workshop community members with building experience will be able to assist with some suggestions for your fencing job.
